CJ To Dr. Francis M. Peterson, our honored and beloved president,
who by precept and example so wisely and nobly points us to
duty, immortal love and God, we affectionately dedicate this
little volume " Chiaroscuro." 2 5 5. 2 2 2 2
SINCE this little volume is edited for the purpose of pleasing you, kind
reader, view it not, we beg, with a critic's eye but pass its imperfections
by. We are confident that you can not fail to comply with our request
when you know that this is our first venture into print — the very earliest
attempt of the students of the A. G. I. S. to give to their friends a chapter of
the life at their dear old Alma Mater.
If we please all our readers, it is necessar} - for us to include in our book
"something to amuse you, something to make you sad, something to make you
sentimental, something to make you laugh, something to make you weep, and
something to make you think."
Although we tried to keep up a buoyant faith in our undertaking, without
the inspiration and aid of our friends among the faculty, officers and girls, it is
possible that it might have failed. We are especially indebted to our acting
President for his interest manifested in a most practical way. We also owe our
English teacher "a personal debt for unfailing kindness and encouragement
which can only be acknowledged, never repaid." Nor can we forget the help
and sympathetic interest of the Faculty Committee on School Publications.

The March winds brought Miss Allison to Piedmont, Alabama, where she
has lived ever since. The first four years of her school life were spent under
the tutelage of her mother. She then attended the Cumberland Presbyterian
Seminary of Piedmont: her life in this school ended when she came to Montevallo,
where she remained only one session. She was out of school for a year and a
half, and in January of the second year at home, she became a pupil of the
Frances E. Willard Public School. After two years she received a certificate
from this school. In 1904, she returned to the A. G. I. S., and entered the
Sophomore Class. Her willing hands are always extended to give help to a

Centreville, Alabama, was a place of rejoicing when Miss Cleveland, with
her poetic nature, first entered the home of her parents. She learned her "A B
C's" in the public school of her native city; here all of her preparatory school
days were spent. In September of 1903, she came to Montevallo, and entered
the Sophomore Class. She is the great mathematician of the Class, and we
would hope for her some success in the scientific world, if it were not for a very
serious " heart trouble " with which she is affected.

One eventful May inorning Oak Hill, Alabama, welcomed another bright
flower, little Sara Dale. The honor of first awakening this mind to intellectual
life is claimed by the Oak Hill High School. Her name remained on this
school roll until '05, when she came to Montevallo equipped to enter the Junior
Class. Her life at the A. G. I. S. has been marked by earnest work in all
departments of school duties. The class of '07 is blessed in having such a
talented musician. Her few leisure moments are rendered more pleasant by
the perfume of carnations which are the result of Cupid's magical work. Miss
Dale is a young woman of fine character and of marked devotion to duty.

Bessie Gordon was born in Eutaw, Alabama, in the month of November.
All of her preparatory school days were spent in the Eutaw High School.
After she received a certificate from this institution, she came to Montevallo,

Miss Hatcher entered this mundane sphere amid the gentle breezes of
April. She first beheld this beautiful world in Hartford, Alabama. Her early
knowledge was gained in the public schools of Geneva County. She afterwards
attended the Newton High School. Her school days in Montevallo began when
she entered the Freshman Class. Miss Hatcher is interested in all forms of re-
ligion, and we predict for her a large circle of friends and a wide influence
wherever her lot may be cast.

An addition to the pleasures of the celebrations of the May festivities was
the appearance of Miss McCord. Her gray matter was first cultivated at the
Goodwater High School of her native village, Goodwater, Alabama. In 1905
she entered the Sophomore Class, and ever since that time she has been a
regular attendant of the A. G. I. S. When she came to Montevallo, she had
acquired the art of making " A " in English, and she has never departed from
her early training. She will receive her certificate in Scientific Cooking this
year. We wonder why this particular branch of work is especially interesting
to her. Quiet and retired in disposition, gentle and courteous in manner, con-
scientious in work, she is one of the most lovable of our class.

To Camden, Alabama, the class of '07 is indebted for Miss Miller, its loyal
President. With the primrose she came to brighten the home of her parents,
and we are certain that she has never forgotten that her life is to harmon ze
with this flower. Her first school days were spent ill the public school of her
native village. Here she remained until she entered the ninth grade of the
Chester (S. C.) Graded School. The next year she returned to Camden, where
she remained out of school a session. In 1904, she made a wise decision and
maxticulated in the A. G. I. S. When she came, she shared the "abundant
wisdom" of the Sophomore Class Seeing three long years before her final
destination, she diligently began her journey, and now in the third year of
earnest work, she distinctly sees that which will tell her that her school days
at Moutevallo are ended. She was a representative to the Students' Volunteer
Movement at Nashville in '06. The quietude of her school life here is disturbed
by the chemistry experiments which are peculiarly exciting to her. With her
shy and winsome manner
she has won her way to the
affections of every class-
mate, and we are certain
that she will have many
friends after leaving these

When the gentle breezes of a warm June day were blowing Miss Nettles
came to Beuna Vista, Alabama. To the public school of Beuna Vista must be
given the honor of storing the first knowledge in her cranium. When she left
this school, she spent one session in a school of Natchez, Alabama; then she
entered the Sophomore Class of the A. G. I. S. After spending one year and a
half here, she showed her ability by teaching a session near her home. She re-
turned to school and entered the Junior Class of '06. She was a representative
to the Students' Volunteer Movement at Nashville in '06, and to the Gulf States'
Convention at Montgomery in '07 As the branches of the wild rose spread in
every direction, so her knowledge touches many subjects, but it centres in
Edu ation. She will receive her full Diploma this year. Her career in school
has been marked by native ability and studious habits; and we not only hope,
hut we expect, a large measure of success to be hers after she leaves school.

Miss Robinson entered this "vale of tears " among the chrysanthemums of
Alexander City, Alabama. The child's early instinct to talk soon died, and
since that time her proficiency in English has been of a silent order. She first
attended the Alexander City Graded High School, where she remained until
she finished the eight grade. Then she went one year to a private school of
Alexander City, and then completed the work of the tenth grade in the Alex-
ander City Graded High School. The next year she joined the Sophomores of
the A. G. I. S., and ever since then she has been seen within its walls. She
was a representative to the Gulf States' Convention at Montgomery in '07.
Although not gifted with the fluency of an orator, she possesses a sweet dispo-
sition and the art of making friends.

Amid the swaying golden rod in the quiet village of West Bend. Alabama.
Miss Scruggs commenced her earthly sojourn. Her early education was ob-
tained at a private school of Atlanta, Georgia, where she remained one session.
She returned to West Bend, and attended the public school of that place until
she came to Montevallo in 1 902. She entered the Freshman Class, and has
been connected with the A. G. I. S. ever since then. Being in frail health in
'04, she wisely decided to spend three years in the Junior and Senior (.Masses.
She was a representative to the Gulf States' Convention at Montgomery in '07.
Her lovable disposition, expressed so plainly in her sweet face, has won so
many friends that we are not able to find one enemy for her in all the student
A Tale of the Class
Ten little Seniors, all in a line,
One got married, then there were nine;
Nine little Seniors in the same state,
One moved out West, then there were eight;
Eight little Seniors loving Jevon(s)
One got to hating him, then there were seven;
Seven little Seniors, all were called bricks,
One joined a mason, leaving but six;
Six little Seniors truly alive,
One sailed away, then there were five;
Five little Seniors, sound at the core,
One got hearts-ease, then there were four;
Four little Seniors gay and heart free,
One was caught, then there were three;
Three little Seniors made up the crew,
One jumped overboard, then there were two;
Two little Seniors of the line the end,
The standard of the class truly defend.

Junior Class Poem
The White Pink
Of all the flowers that ever bloomed,
Which one is fairest? Think!
As Juniors of A. G. I. S.
We say the sweet white pink.
Its petals small, a myriad throng,
To count's a task complete.
A task well done which leaves behind
A memory fresh and sweet.
White is the type of purity,
Pure women may we be,
Who will not fail to fight for good
On life's broad boundless sea.
The green of stems and dainty leaves
A sign of strength alway.
Pure thoughts bring light to darkened earth
But strength must make it stay.
And so this little flower we choose;
An emblem pure and strong,
To cheer us on to do our best.
And keep the world from wrong.

The class of 1909 was organized in November,
1905, as a body of about ninety Freshmen. The of-
ficers chosen were, Ellen Davis, President: Bessie
Shirley, Vice President, and Elizabeth Pratt. Sec-
retary and Treasurer. We chose as our colors yel-

As we were inexperienced in this work, we did
nothing worthy of note during the first two terms.
The entertainment given us by the Young Wo-
men's Christian Association, however, will always
be remembered, for it brought us more closely in
touch with one another.
A great deal of interest was taken in the Class
Day exercises of Alay 13, 1906. In the Assembly
Hall we formed in line, and with our Standard
Bearer leading, we marched to the Chapel singing
<>ur class song as we went. After reaching the
Chapel all the classes stood until the Seniors had
taken their places on the rostrum. The President
of our class replied to the speech made by the Pres-
ident of the Senior Class. Then we sang our stanza
in the general class song, after which all the other
classes sang in turn.
When the session was over we returned to our
various homes happy ; yet with all this happiness
there was mingled a feeling of sadness.
After a vacation of three and one half months,
we came back to school not as Freshmen, but as
'Tis true that some of our class were missing ;
nevertheless, their places were filled by a number
of new students whose names were soon added to
our list, and officers for ic)o6-'o7 were elected. Ellen
Davis was re-elected President; Emma Long was
elected Vice-President; Nannie Davis Secretary and
Treasurer ; Myra Williams, Prophet ; Hycie Haynie,
Critic ; Maggie Sanford, Poet ; Ella Maye Gardner,
There are now about sixty regular members
enn died in the class.
This year we hope to work in such a way that
next year we shall not merely be called Juniors, but
that we shall be worthy of that name. And ven-
turing' still further into the shadowy future, we
trust that when we shall have finished three vears
of A. G. I. S. work, we shall enter the fourth year
with a determination to make the twelfth graduat-
ing class the largest and strongest in the record of

Song o' the Subs
In our Freshman _vear, we had no fear
But thought we knew it all :
Ere we were through, we quite well knew
That pride had had a fall.
We jumbled things, the queens and kings
And dates of History;
To stand the test or sum, es est,
\\ as then a victory.
Still we were not so sad. and never very bad.
Though exams, made us feel a little blue ;
So all ye Freshmen dear, partake of better cheer.
For we were quite as verdant once as you.
We then began, as Sophs, to plan
What we were going to be.
Oh ! Xo ! Absurd was not the word.
So self-important we.
The Gallic War did much to mar
The confidence we felt ;
Likewise the words : Cube-root and surds.
Infinitive and Celt.
Oh ! we were happy then, but did not think so, when
Examinations made us all lament ;
So Sophomores take heart, and try to do your part.
For we were once in your predicament.
As Juniors next, we were quite vexed
At all we had to do.
We had to write, till late at night.
On themes and Ethics, too.
Our wear}- brains did tax ;
Geometry and History
Would ne'er let us relax.
But still we had our fun; for when their tasks are
All Juniors rest ; indeed this is not strange —
In nineteen-six, 'twas true, in nineteen-seven. too.
This rule should stand without a single change.
Irregulars three, we've decided to be.
Whom a Graduate-student dubs
With a little vexation and irritation
And anger, perhaps, "The Subs."
So the name we retain, and "Subs" we remain,
Until this session is o'er;
With a tear and a sigh, we'll say "Good-bye,"
And our days as "Subs" are no more.
So with sines and interpolation, we work with but
With Indirect Discourse and Ablative Abso-
lutes, too ;
The treaties of Paris and Ryswick ; Xitric Acid and
Glacial Phosphoric :
And now, kind friends, we bid you a fond
Following a voice which seemed to be calling
me. I was led to the chapel of A. G. I. S. and to a
seat in the senior row of desks. There was a mys-
terious looking man on the rostrum, who had set
up an apparatus fur a moving picture show. He
was announcing that he would present a series of
pictures of the class of '07. thirty years hence.
Ah- gaze is riveted on the passing show. I see
a club room in which there is an assembly of in-
terested women. A familiar figure is in the presi-
dent's chair. I know her — but who is she? Yes, it
is Brice Miller, the president of the class of '07. I
think 1 can tell the plans of those noble women,
and I know that my classmate has determination
sufficient to do her part, and human kindness
enough to lend a helping hand to those in need of
it. The club adjourns, and quickly I am introduced
to Sara Dale. Yes, she has changed : but in her
still handsome face, one can see that she is a wo-
man of thought and much strength of character.
She is an enthusiastic instructor of music in a well
known college of the South. As the scene is shift-
ed, 1 catch a fleeting glimpse of her as she writes to
Brice, who is still her closest friend and dearest
In a library whose shelves are crowded with
dark, well-worn books, the most of which are his-
tories, I see a pale, sweet faced little woman with
stooped shoulders seated at the desk. After search-
ing among the papers on a file, Bessie Gordon, with
true historic zeal, consults Gibbon, and then begins
writing the concluding chapter of her Roman his-
Now I am transported to a school in China.
The room is filled with children who have their
eager, yellow faces turned toward their teacher who
is gladly, powerfully relating the parable of the
ninety and nine sheep. That sympathetic teacher
is Alma Robinson. Her once dark hair is now gen-
erously streaked with gray; but it is her face that
holds one. It tells that she has caught and reflects
the life of the Une of whom she teaches.
The scene following brings me back to an Amer-
ican home. A little woman, with hair still dark and
eves yet bright, takes her seat in an easy chair by
the fire. By the dim light. I recognize Nell Cleve-
land, whose expression has only deepened with
time. A tall man with a kind, thoughtful face takes
a volume from the book-case. Nell is not so much
hampered by household cares that she can not de-
vote a great deal of her time to poetry ; and that
brown book is filled with her lyrics.
Yes, I think this is a kindergarten ; for it is a
school room in which there are many small children
engaged in drawing a box. The teacher, a rather
stout middle-aged woman with a happy, vivid face,
is Xealie Nettles. The scene changes, and I see
her with bundles and suit-case calling good-byes to
a group of saddened school children, as she boards
a San Francisco train. She is about to realize the
dream of her youth — to go on a trip around the
world to see the places about which she has read.
My attention is now held by the sight of a law-
yer's office. A hurrying woman — Cora Allison —
goes to the typewriter. Time has changed her but
little ; and she seems to have a very systematic, bus-
iness-like turn of mind; and it is rumored that she
-knows a great deal about law and that her opinions
A middle-aged man is in his study faithfully-
working over his sermon. The door opens and a
"tiny scrap" of a woman looks in. The minister
bids her come, and she seats herself by him. Ettie
May Hatcher's thin gray hair is smoothly combed
back from her gentle face, which appears to be a
little careworn. The man leaves off his work, and
she opens a letter — yes, it is a long letter from
Howard College; she seems to be almost as much
interested in that school as in former days.
"Should old acquaintances be forgot?"
Pasteboard pyramids, dodecahedrons, icosahe-
drons, and other polyhedrons loom up before me,
and a great amount of blackboard space is visible ;
these tell that this room is headquarters for mathe-
matics. A tall woman, who is no longer young, is
seated at her desk. She has a rare charm that gives
one the impression that she is a teacher of much
feeling as well as a woman with broad conceptions.
She sends the whole class to the board, and one
student has much difficulty with her problem in
trigonomery. Miss Scruggs, for she is the in-
structor and the head of the department of mathe-
matics, makes a suggestion which works, like magic,
for the problem is soon solved.
Alberta is gone, and I am breathless with inter-
est to get the picture of the only remaining member
of the class. "Machine out of fix, Madam," comes a

DAMES OF THE fiO'S
Time — From feast of Lupercalia in February, 44
B. C, to the battle of Philippi, in the autumn of 42
Places — Rome, Sardis, and Philippi.
"But men may construe things after their fashion.
Clean from the purpose of the things themselves."
Act I Scene iii.
Spiritual Theme —
"Law is universal and inviolable."
Name — Julius Caesar is stabbed in Act III. hut
the play is well named, for Caesar's spirit dominates
The exposition is in the first act. It gives the
personages and surroundings, also the impetus of
the whole drama. It is illustrated to some extent
by these qui itations :
"I lut, indeed, sir. we make holiday to see Caesar,
and rejoice in his triumph." — Act I Scene i.
Anti Hi}- —
" I shall remember ;
When Caesar says, 'Do this'; it is performed."
"Brutus, I do observe you how of late:
I have not from your eyes that gentleness
And show of love as I was wont to have:
You bear too stubborn and too strange a hand
Over your friend that loves you." — Act I Scene i
"Beware the ides of March!" — Act I Scene i.
"Set honor in one eye, and death i' the other.
And 1 will look on both indifferently ;
For let the gods so speed me as I love
The name of honor more than I fear death."
Act I Scene ii.
"And this man
Is now become a god ; and Cassius is
A wretched creature, and must bend his body
If Caesar carelessly but nod on him."
Act I Scene i.
"Ay, marry, was't, and he put it by thrice, every
time gentler than other ; and at every putting by
mine honest neighbors shouted." — Act I Scene iii
"Indeed, they say. the Senators tomorrow
Mean to establish Caesar as King;
And he shall wear his crown by sea and land,
In every place, save here in Italy."
Act I Scene iii
"O, Cassius. if you could
But win noble Brutus to our party!"
Act I Scene iii.
The clash of interest begins with the exciting
"Ay, do you fear it?
Then must I think you would not have it so."
Act I Scene ii.
Cassius says these words to Brutus just after
Brutus has said he fears the people will choose
Caesar for their king.
"Heightening" of Action
The "heightening" leads up to the climax. We
see the beginning of the conspiracy and the plans.
We see how Brutus is lead into it by his very
"honor," and how he becomes the life of it. We get
an idea of the "heightening" by these quotations:
"O, you and 1 have heard our fathers sav,
There was a Brutus once that would havebrook'd
The eternal devil to keep his state in Rome
As easily as a king!" Act I Scene ii.
Brutus to Cassius —
"That you do love me, I am nothing jealous.
What you would work me to, I have some aim ;
How I have thought of this, and of these times.
I shall recount hereafter; for the present,
I would not, so with love I might entreat you.
Be any further mov'd." Act I Scene ii
Cassius — ■
"And why should Caesar be a tyrant, then?
Poor man ! I know he would not be a wolf.
But that he sees the Romans are but sheep;
He were no lion, were not Romans hinds."
Lucius searching the window for a light.
This paper thus sealed up. and I am sure
It did not lie there when I went to bed."
Act II Scene i.
"'Speak, strike, redress!' Am I entreated
To speak and strike? O Rome! I made thee
If the redress will follow, thou receivest
Thy full petition at the hand of Brutus."
Act II Scene iii.
" 'Tis good. Go to the gate ; somebody knocks."
"Since Cassius first did whet me against Caesar
I have not slept.
Between the acting of a dreadful thing
And the first notion, all the interim is
Like a phantasma or a hideous dream.
The genius and the mortal instruments
Are then in council, and the state of man.
Like a little kingdom, suffers then
The nature of an insurrection." Act II Scene i.
"Let 'em enter —
They are the faction, ( ) Conspiracy!
Sham'st thou to show thy dangerous brow by
When evils are most free? O, then, by day
Where wilt thou find a cavern dark enough
To mask thy monstrous visage?
For, if thou path, thy native semblance on,
Not Erebus itself were dim enough
To hide thee from prevention." Act I Scene i.
"They are all welcome."
Xow, that we are sure that Brutus is a conspira-
tor, let us watch how the others are led by his de-
"I think it is not meet
Mark Anthony, so well beloved of Caesar,
Should outlive Caesar.
Let Anthony and Caesar fall together."
Act I Scene ii.
'"And for Mark Anthony, think not of him,
For he can do no more than Caesar's arm
When Caesar's head is off." Act I Scene ii.
"But it is doubtful yet
Whether Caesar will come forth today or no ;
For he is superstitious grown of late.
And the persuasions of his angerers
May hold him from the Capitol today."
Act II Scene i.
"The morning comes upon's, we'll leave you."
"And, friends, disperse yourselves, but all re-
What you have said, and show yourselves true
"Let not our looks put on our purposes."
Act II, Scene i.
"Follow me, then."
In Scene ii Caesar sends a servant to bid the
priests to sacrifice. The word is sent back for him
not to stir forth ; for the} - could find no heart in the
beast. Calpurnia, his wife, had dreamed that she
saw Caesar's statua.
Which, like a fountain with a hundred spouts.
Did run pure blood, and many lust}- Romans
Came smiling and did bathe their hands in it."
Act II Scene i.
She begged Caesar to stay at home. At last, he
yielded to her plea, and said :
"Mark Anthony shall say
I am not well."
Decius Brutus, a conspirator, came for Caesar.
He told Caesar that Calpurnia's dream should be
interpreted in this way:
"It was a vision fair and fortunate,
Your statue spouting blood in many pipes,
In which so many smiling Romans bathed.
Signifies that from you great Rome shall suck
Reviving blood, and that great men shall press
For tinctures, stains, relics, and cognizance."
Caesar then said he would go forth.
In Scene iv, Portia sends Lucius to the Capitol
to bring word of Brutus. We think Brutus must
have told his plans to his wife. A soothsayer, when
asked by Portia if he had some suit to Caesar, an-
" 'That I have. lady, if it will please Caesar
To be so good to Caesar as to hear me
I shall beseech him to befriend himself."
In Act III are found the Climax and the Tragic
Moment. The Climax is where the dramatic forces
contending for the mastery are most evenly bal-
anced. In Act III, Caesar enters the Capitol and
all follow. Artemidorus presses forward with his
letter, but Caesar refuses to read it. All the others
crowd around and plea for pardon for Publius Cim-
ber. Caesar says :
"I could be well mov'd, if I were as you;
If I could pray to move, prayers would move me;
But I am constant as the northern star.
Of whose time-fixed and restive quality
There is no fellow in the firmament.
I was constant Cimber should be banish'd.
And constant do remain to keep him so."
Brutus pleads for Cimber. Casca stabs Caesar,
then several others stab him. Lastly, Brutus' sword
pierces Caesar. Caesar says : "Et tu, Brute?
Then, fall, Caesar."
The Tragic moment is suggested by this pas-
"And for Mark Anthony, think not of him;
For he can do no more than Caesar's arm
When Caesar's head is off." Act II Scene i.
The tragic moment is confirmed when Brutus
allows Mark Anthony:
"In the pulpit as becomes a friend,
Speak in the order of his funeral."
Act III Scene 1.
The falling action begins when Mark Anthony
sends his servant to ask the explanation of Caesar's
Brutus himself helps to forward the falling ac-
tion by these words :
"Good countrymen, let me depart alone.
And, for my sake, stay here with Anthony :
Do grace to Caesar's corpse, and grace his speech
Tending to Caesar's glories, which Mark An-
By our permission is allowed to make.
I do entreat you, not a man depart.
Save I alone, till Anthony have spoke."
Act III Scene ii.
Moment of Final Suspense
The moment of final suspense is when the for-
tune presaged by the general nature of the falling
action seems contradicted, or at least held in sus-
pense by some unforeseen occurrence. After
Brutus' speech, we feel that the conspirators have
triumphed, but the falling action is precipitated by
The falling; action continues. Anthony, Octa-
vius, and Lepidus form the second Triumvirate.
Brutus and Cassius quarrel. Brutus, through change
of fortune, becomes a different man. Cassius agrees
to go to Philippi, though he sees that it is not best.
They advance to Philippi and engage in battle.
The catastrophe is the final allotment of fortune.
Cassius thinks the battle is going against the Con-
spirators, and asks Pindarus to pierce him with the
sword that helped to kill Caesar. Cassius in dying
"Caesar, thou are revenged.
Even with the sword that killed thee."
Brutus says :
"The ghost of Caesar appeared to me
Two several times by night ; at Sardis once.
And this last night here in Philippi fields.
I know my hour is come." Act V Scene v.
He begs Strato to hold the sword for him.
Brutus dying, says :
"Caesar, now be still ;
I killed not thee with half so srood a will."

Although Murillo's picture "Mother and Child"
is meant for Christ and His mother, and as such we
would expect a Jewish woman and boy of the year
one, yet we can trace in it the influence of the time
in which the artist lived, his nationality, and, as a
matter of course, we have in the picture Murillo's
peculiar method of painting.
The cry of the Andalusian people in the seven-
teenth century was for pictures of a religious nature,
so Murillo painted mostly from subjects taken from
the Bible, but he used his own people as types. The
"Mother and Child" is anions' the number of his re-
ligious pictures, and in it. we have the general out-
line of an Audalusian mother holding her baby.
Murillo was a realist by nature, and as such, we
would have had in his pictures everything given,
even the minutest detail, and all this without much
spirit. But his faith transformed him into an ideal-
ist and in his picture, painted after he had experi-
enced a deep spiritual feeling, we notice in a greater
degree the softness and sweetness of his touch along
with some lack of force and strength. The love of
detail made Murillo a master of technique, while
his genuine religious feeling made his pictures ex-
pressive of high sentiment.
The effect on Murillo of this outside influence
and inward transformation, we are made to see and
feel in his picture, "Mother and Child."
There is nothing in the background of this pic-
ture that distracts our attention from the picture
itself. All is a dead brown with no distinguishing
object save the bench upon which the Virgin is
A mantle falls loosely and carelessly around the
skirts of the mother. Her bodice fits neatly about
the arm and shoulder. The gown is cut low. show-
ing full shoulders and neck. A scarf hanging down
in the hack, covers the head except for a small space
about the face. The Mother holds in her left hand
a soft, thick cloth that will feel comfortable to the
tender skin of her hah}'. A sweeping curve from the
neck and right shoulder ends in the right hand that
clasps the Child under the left arm. while his little
arm lies babyishly along her larger one.
The baby has on no clothing, and half sits, half
stands, on the capacious lap and arms of the mother.
He is a robust little baby with a well shaped head,
a round face, dimpled hands and elbows, plump
limbs and playful feet. Taken altogether it is the
form of a chubby, well-rounded little body.
Both the boy and his mother have the black hair
and dark eyes characteristic of the Andalusians. He
has a shock of wavy, thick hair, with three natural
little waves falling down over his forehead about in
the shape of the fleur-de-lis. Perhaps it would lie
straining the matter a little too far to say that these
three slight curls strengthen the idea of the Trinity-
embodied in Christ.
These waves of hair go well with the large, dark,
serious eyes of the boy. llis eye-brows, although
slightly curved, are not so arched as those of the
mother, neither is the look altogether as much one
of quiet seriousness, yet undoubtedly the eyes of
both express the silent sympathy and understand-
ing between the two. There is a slight halo around
the head of each to indicate to us that the artist is
conscious of his limitations when it comes to paint-
ing the Divine Jesus and his saintly mother.
There is nothing harsh about the picture, no
abrupt turns, no protruding points. All is softness
made up of curved lines.
As we have said before, the event that gives to
the picture, "Mother and Child," its significance,
came to pass nearly two thousand years before this
picture was painted. It was at that far-away date
that Mary brought forth a son and called his name
Jesus, the Savior of men.
We that are acquainted with the story of the
future life of this Divine Child, think that we can
read in the serious and almost exultant look, all the
possibilities of the future.
The mother holds the babe in her protecting
arms, while the child leans against her bosom con-
fidingly, although his head is held erect as if he
must keep wide awake for the work that is already
planned for him.
The mother's thoughts are concentrated. 1 think.
on the child, although she looks out of the picture
far beyond him. Perhaps she is looking into his
future life, with a great mother love, dimly con-
scious of the trial that will rend her heart as the
mother of the dear baby, Jesus ; for she has heard
through Simeon that on account of this child much
suffering will be brought to the mother heart. There
is on her face, however, a sense of happy mystery,
as if her life has already proved a glorious experi-
ence, and promises even more for the future than
for the past.
The child is like a young bird in its nest, and He
leans against His mother with the assurance of a
warm, soft, abiding place; but as He follows her
gaze, there is a serious and even grand expression
in His eyes.
Both Mary and Jesus seem to be looking beyond
the bounds of ordinary life.
When all is said this picture presents to us a
true likeness of Christ and his Mother as we con-
The work of the artist is done simply and in
keeping with the two characters. He secures unity
by means nf the nearness of the two figures, the po-
sition of the arms, and most of all, by the straight-
forward look of both in the same direction. The
picture is serious, noble, and great in its very truth
and simplicity. There is nothing superfluous, noth-
ing that jars, nothing that indicates anything but
self-forgetfulness on the part of each. "Both the
Mother and the Boy seem to forget themselves in
the thought of some great service to others."
Shakespeare's conception of his characters is
united with his conception of the dramatic action.
His characters are full of life, depth, and truth, and
their development is consistent. In "Macbeth" there-
is a variety of character delineation, yet each char-
ter stands out in bold relief because of Shakespeare's
use of gradation, complement, and negation.
Barrett Wendall says. "The means by which the
characters of Macbeth and his Lady are expressed,
indeed, would suggest doubt as to whether Shake-
speare could have deliberately thought of them at
all, except as concepts which he was bound to body
From a study of the characters, we see that Mac-
beth is revealed to us through suggestion, through
direct statements of himself and others, through his
actions, and through implication. The first sugges-
tion of Macbeth's character is given by the witches
when they plan to meet Macbeth on the heath.
And we are introduced to him through the report
of the sergeant, who says :
"For brave Macbeth — well he deserves that name —
Disdaining Fortune, with his brandish'd Steele,
Which smok'd with bloody execution.
Like valour's minion carv'd out his passage
Till he faced the slave ;
Which ne'er shook hands, nor bade farewell to him,
Till he unseam'd him from the nave to the chaps.
And fixed his head upon our battlements."
When Macbeth and Banquo meet the witches on
the heath, we get an insight into Macbeth's charac-
ter. Banquo directs our attention to the effect pro-
duced on Macbeth by the witches:
"Good sir, why do you start and seem to fear
Things that do sound so fair?"
Through Lady Macbeth's soliloquy after read-
ing the letter from her husband, we see more deeply
into Macbeth's life:
"Thou wouldst be great.
Art not without ambition, but without the illness
should attend it :
What thou wouldst highly,
That wouldst thou holily ; wouldst not play false.
And yet wouldst wronglv win."
She also tells Macbeth.
"Your face, my thane, is as a hook where men
May read strange matters."
In Act I Scene iv, through Macbeth's own words,
we see the intense selfishness of the character, and
from his first soliloquy, we see the moral cowardice
of the man. But from Macbeth's actions we get
the deeper meaning of his life. He is revealed also
through implication. In Ross's report of the condi-
tion of the country under the rules of Macbeth, he
represents it as a place
But who knows nothing, is once seen to smile;
Where sighs and groans and shrieks that rent the air
Are made, not mark'd; where violent sorrow >eemv
A modern ecstasy: the dead man's knell
Is there scarce ask'd for who; and good men's lives
Expire before the flowers in their caps,
Dying or ere the} - sicken."
Lady Macbeth is revealed almost entirely
through statements of her own and through her in-
fluence on others. In her famous prayer we see that
she must have realized that she was a woman with
a woman's weakness ;
"Come, you spirits
That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here.
And fill me from the crown to the top full
( If direst cruelty !
Come to my woman's breast
And take my milk for gall, you muttering ministers.
^Yherever in your sightless substances
You wait on nature's mischief !"
In the banquet scene we see from her relation to
the guests that she is a woman of courtesv. The
sleeping scene reveals her to us through direct state-
ments i if her ( iwn :
"The thane of Fife had a wife: where is she now? —
What will these hands ne'er be clean?
"Here's the smell of blood still : all the perfumes
of Arabia will not sweeten this little hand.
( )h. oh. oh."
Her influence with Macbeth also reveals her
character. She says :
"Screw your courage to the sticking-place.
And we'll not fail."
Macbeth answers her plans, saying:
"1 am settled, and bend up
Each corporal agent to this terrible feat."
The characters of Banquo and Macduff are in-
troduced, in a large measure, at least, for the sake
of character contrast with Macbeth. Banquo is
revealed chiefly through statements of his own, but
the statements of others also throw some light on
his character. Duncan savs of him :
" Noble Banquo,
Thou hast no less deserved nor must be known
No less to have done so ."
Banquo says on the night of the murder:
"A heavy summons lies like lead upon me
And yet I would not sleep. Merciful powers.
Restrain in me the cursed thoughts that nature
Gives way to in repose!"
This passage has been interpreted in many ways,
but there is certainly a revelation in it.
Macduff is described through his statements,
and, also, through implication. In answer to Mal-
"Let us seek out some desolate shade, and there
Weep our sad bosoms empty."
He says :
"Let us rather
Hold fast the mortal sword, and, like good men.
Bestride our down-fallen birthdom."
After learning of his great loss, the death of his
wife and children, he cries:
"But I must feel it as a man ;
I cannot but remember such things were,
That were most precious to me. — Did heaven look
And would not take their part?"
"My wife killed, too?"
llis wild amazement at this fate shows that he
has no conception of the depth of guilt to which.
Macbeth has sunk, and also his own essential inno-
cence appears in his despairing outer} - :
The}' were all struck for thee! naught that I am.
Not for their own demerits, but for mine.
Fell slaughter on their souls."
Malcolm's "Merciful Heavens!" is fraught with
meaning and throws additional light on Macduff's
character. Macduff begins to play in the story a
prominent part just as Banquo drops out. Shake-
speare thus keeps the characters apart by contrast.
Banquo and Macduff make Macbeth appear even
more wicked than he is.
Dr. Johnson says of "Macbeth": "The play has
no nice discriminations of characters." While the
"grandeur of the dramatic combination" may some-
what overshadow the individual characters, yet the
personality of each character is distinct, and Shake-
speare has made us feel this through direct state-
ments, implications, influence of characters, and
Heredity, innate tendencies, environment, de-
velopment, and dominant motive, are all prominent
causes for the difference between Lady MacBeth's
love for .Macbeth, and Nancy Lammeter's love for
Godfrey Cass. Lady .Macbeth, we feel sure, in-
herited a proud, imperious nature; Nancy, a quietly
good disposition. As a consequence, heredity gave
to each different tendencies. We can easily believe
that Lady Macbeth from childhood up had always
a wilful, high-strung temperament that never stayed
within the bounds of the present, but was always
reaching toward the future. Nancy, never knowing
anything but obedience through her conscience to
the Higher Power, held herself thorouehry sub-
servient to the right in the present, it mattered not
what suffering might come with it now- or in the
future. Next, the atmosphere in which each lived
was a powerful agency to firing about quite oppo-
site results. Lady Macbeth lived in a country that
was "almost afraid to know itself"; Nancy lived
hardly in echoing distance of turmoil and strife;
thus. Nancy had more time and opportunity for
choosing the better way. They each developed into
strong women, capable of the deepest feeling — love.
Each, however, sought in her love quite a different
thing from the other. Lady Macbeth craved for
Macbeth worldly honors; Nancy sought for God-
frey, happiness brought about through doing right.
All of these things — heredity, temperament, en-
vironment, development, and dominant motive in
life, have to be taken into account when we consider
the difference in the nature of the love of these
women. Lady Macbeth stopped short of no under-
taking that promised a rich harvest for Macbeth in
this world ; Nancy, defying disappointment and suf-
fering, would not let herself once stray from the
straight and narrow way that leads to eternal life.
"Lad}- Macbeth's love was great, but finite; Nancy's
was greater, for it partook of the infinite."
Silas Marner was, when he reached his twenty-
first year, a young man of "exemplar}' life and ar-
dent faith," and a citizen of Lantern Yard, where he
was highly thought of. He was not a cultured man,
but he was "sane and honest." From his mother,
he had inherited some acquaintance with medicinal
herbs and their preparation — "a little store of
knowledge which she had imparted to him as a sol-
emn bequest." He was a pious, trusting, simple-
minded linen weaver, a member of church and pray-
er-meeting. He trusted implicitly in God and man
until there came into his life a tragic moment which
almost ruined him.
Silas was maliciously charged with theft, and
the lots cast by the church declared him guilty of
the crime which was really committed by one he
complete!}' trusted. Now he lost faith in God and
man. In hopeless despair he left the scerfe of his
disaster and migrated to Raveloe, ami here he he-
came a recluse. "He hated the thought of the past ;
there was nothing that called out his love and fel-
lowship toward the strangers he had come among:
ami the future was all dark — there was no unseen
love that cared for him." He sought no man nor
woman except when his need of supplies or his
calling made it necessary, "lie invited no one to
step across his door-sill, and he never strolled into
the village." Thus he lived in frigid loneliness, in
hopeless, brute despair, until a greed for gold sup-
plied a ruling passion. The hoard of money took
man's place, and he loved it as a human understand-
ing friend. "He handled the coins, he counted
them, till their form and color were like the satis-
faction of a thirst to him." Beyond the money, he
had no purpose. His life consisted of weaving and
hoarding. Yet even in this staee, there was left
some affection in Silas, shown by the incident of
his grief over breaking his earthenware pot.
When, after fifteen years of hoarding, his money
was stolen, Silas' soul was once more a vacuum,
until a waif — a golden-haired child out of the un-
known — was accidently cast upon his protection to
rescue him from his wretched state.
By this "golden-haired child" Silas was brought
back to happiness and to the societv of his neigh-
bors. He must have become a gentle, loving, pa-
tient man to have reared her as he did. He loved
her; she was his "all in all," the ?reat influence of
his life. He became interested in home and tried to
make it comfortable and pleasant: he once more at-
tended church and mingled with his neighbors. By
degrees he was transformed into a man such as God
intended him to be.
The long looked for visit to the site of Lantern
Yard, with the realization that it was no more, com-
pleted the change in Silas' life. At the close he thus
voices the transforming power of love: "Since the
time the child was sent to me and I've come to love
her as myself, I've had light enough to trusten by;
and now she says she'll never leave me. I think I
shall trusten till I die."
Si/as Marner's Cottage
on the Night of
From the outside, on this dark, misty night, the
ray of light from Silas' cottage was very inviting.
On entering, the warm glow of the tire threw into
bold relief the sad neglect of the desolate abode.
To the right of the hearth, stood the great square
loom, the only article of furniure in the room that
gave evidence of careful attention. Just back of
the loom, was a small window, its shutters were
now closed. Sand was sprinkled over the entire
floor, but at the corner of the hearth near the stool
of the loom, the sand was thicker than in any other
place, and on close observation, the imprints of
fingers might be seen.
Near the center of the mantle, above the fire
place, stood one of "Grandfather's" old clocks. The
pendulum was still, and judging from the amount
of dust which covered the clock, it might nut have
swung for years. To the right of the clock, were
three books, and the one under the bottom looked
very much like a paper covered Bible. They, too,
had the appearance of neglect. On the other end of
the mantle, a half-burned candle stood in a rusty
A table was standing near the left of the tire
place, on which were a few dishes, some had great
cracks in them, others were chipped, and all showed
the marks of time. In front of the table was a
leather bottomed chair, while two others, very sim-
ilar to it, were placed back against the wall.
( )n the left of the room, a rude shelf had been
built into the wall. A number of green bottles, with
one earthen waterpot standing near the center,
made up the articles of furniture here.
To the right of the room, in the upper corner,
Stood an old square bedstead with enormous posts.
Behind the door, a ragged coat was hanging, and
near the center of the bed, lay a neatly folded piece
of linen ready to be carried to Airs. Osgood.
These were the furnishings of Silas Marner's
cottage — the place he called home for fifteen years.

John was well on toward three years of age. His
mother was dead; so he lived at "Rampa's," where
he was disciplined, petted, and spoiled by his grand-
parents, two aunts, and an uncle.
John slept with his aunts week about. His
greediness for stories often exhausted the acquired
knowledge, as well as the creative powers, of his
bedfellow. And so it was one night when he was
sleeping with his Aunt Laura.
"John, can't you go to sleep?" said she.
"No, I can't get fixed ; tell me a tale."
"Well. John, shall I tell you 'Little Red Riding
At last, when the story reached the point where
the wood-cutters rush in and exclaim, as they pound
no the wolf with their clubs. "Take that, and that,
and that! And old Sir Wolf is dead!" John, as
usual, joined in the exclamation in his lustiest tone
Aunt Laura, thus finding that this story only
served to make him more wide awake and nervous,
started off in a sleepy, drowsy voice on an im-
promptu list of words with John repeating them
"Encey, mencev, pensey." crooned Aunt Laura.
"Encey, mencev, pensey." repeated John sleepily.
And so on they said till hers was the only voice
to be heard. Bv this she knew that John was in
dreamland, — perhaps acting the part of one of the
wood-cutters; for just as Aunt Laura's eyes were
closing, she saw the shadow of John's little hand
rush out from the cover, and she heard him exclaim,
"'Take that, take that, and that!"
The following night began another week, and
John must sleep with Aunt Nell. Xow John and
Aunt Xell always said the child prayer, "Xow 1 lay
me," in a very solemn manner, kneeling by the bed.
They had reached the part, "I pray Thee, Lord,
my soul to t ." when John had to stop to cough.
"Take," repeated Aunt Xell as a reminder to
him of where he had left off.
"Take that, ami that, and that, and old Sir "Wolf
is dead!" finished John, and crawled up into his bed
to sleep under the watchful care of the Lord whom
he knew in name, but not in spirit.

It was on the twenty-fourth day of December
that Margie, a little girl eight years of age, came
into a jewelry store to spend ten pennies, which she
clutched tightly in her hand.
It was natural that the store should be crowded
to the utmost on Christmas Eve. All classes of peo-
ple were there, but the rich were present in great
numbers. Many mothers were buying bountifully
for their own children: but they were not thinking
of other children like the frail child at their elbows,
who held all her Christmas joy in a pink calico
scrap. There were too man}' pleasures crowded
into the holiday hours of these shoppers for them
to think of any one outside of their own circle.
In this gay crowd, there was a tall, thin-faced,
broad-shouldered man dressed in black. His brown
eyes had a far-away look, and his face stood out in
striking contrast with its joyful surroundings. His
iron grey hair accentuated this suggestion of sad-
ness. He was watching Margie in her vain at-
tempts to get near the counters.
While waiting", however, Margie was not dis-
couraged. She wandered about, attracted at first by
a doll, then by a small stoye or piano. She encircled
the room seyeral times without spending one of her
pennies. There were two reasons why she did not
part with her coins : one was that she got only an
occasional look at the Christmas goods as the crowd
surged backward and forward; the other was that
the only time she succeeded in reaching the counter,
she failed to gain the attention of the clerk, because
she was so small and insignificant in appearance.
Xow the grey-haired man noticed this small bit
of a child ruthlessly pushed aside by the crowd. She
attracted him because of her neatness and patience.
She wore a dark blue calico dress freshly laundered.
The only trimmings on the dress were the patches
on each elbow and the one on the right hip. The
straight white hair was parted in the middle, plaited
in one small plait, and tied at the end with a short
piece of faded blue ribbon. The face was long, nar-
row, and pale ; the searching blue eyes, however,
relieved somewhat the pallid face.
The grey-haired man, stooping down, said to
Margie : "Be patient a little longer; in a few min-
utes the crowd will go to the church to decorate for
Sure enough the crowd soon thinned: and Mar-
gie could see more easily anything she wished. She
proceeded to select presents for her mother, father,
five brothers and three sisters. She chose a knife for
her father, and marbles, tops, and trains for her
brothers. She could not decide what to get her
mother and sisters. At last she selected a cup with
"Love me" on it for her mother, and a silver ring
for each of the sisters.
While Margie was making her selections, the
grey-haired man was watching her from the oppo-
site end of the store. Finallv, he heard her trying
to persuade a clerk to wrap up the articles as she
pointed them out, and he also saw her hand the
clerk a penny for each of them.
"Why, child, you couldn't get one of these things
with all the money you've got!" caught his ear.
And then came Margie's reply, "I can get any-
thing I want at the penny store for a penny, and 1
don't see why i can't here, too."
She could keep the tears back no longer: for
those ten pennies represented several months of
Margie was just leaving the store when the
grey-haired man caught her gently by the arm and
said. "Come, my child, and we shall see where the
trouble lies. What is it you want?"
Margie's face brightened as she again pointed
out her selections. Together, they watched the
varied gifts wrapped as before.
"But," exclaimed Margie, "the clerk said I
couldn't get these with my money?" As she spoke,
she held up her ten pennies in the pink scrap.
The stranger answered, "Just give him your
money and street number and everything will be
all right, for I am the one to say what the articles
in this store are to cost."
"O, Edith, where arc yon going? To walk?
Wait, and I'll go with you. Say, have you written
your Christmas story?"
"I can't say yet. 1 have one started, but it is a
poor thing. Where do you think the climax ought
to come? I put what 1 think is the climax at the he-
ginning. I really can't remember where Miss Wells
said have it come. I wish she would let us wait
until after Christmas to hand our stories in, and I'd
make something happen while I'm at home."
This conversation took place between two prom-
ising Sophomores of a Southern boarding school for
The same evening at supper, the girls at one of
the tables were discussing spiritedly the same sub-
ject, Christmas stories.
.Mattie, another of the Sophomores, said to the
whole table :
"I know what I'll do, — write to Airs. Strickland
to tell me one of her stories and that will help me
think up one for myself. But if I do write to her,
you all will laugh and plague me about Joe." with
a teased laugh.
"( )h, well, that's what you are wanting, Alattie,
more than the story — news of Joe. As to my story,
I have had three or four plots fixed in my mind, lint
that's the trouble, they are so fixed that they won't
move oft nor on. I wish .Miss Wells would let us
wait until after Christmas for the stories, for I have
so much to do that I don't have time to think of
anything that ever happened. I feel sure that some
tragic event will come off this Christmas wdiile I
am at home. I'll go with anybody that will go and
ask .Miss Wells to let us hand our stories in after we
This length}-, but hurried speech came from a
The next day in the alphabetical line at mail-
call an L said to an M:
"Have you written your Christmas story?"
"Yes, it's all ready to hand in." said M., a Junior,
who had the conscious smile of never having' been
behind time in anything. "But I really would
change my story a little as to its theme, if 1 coul 1
wait and hand it in after Christmas ; for my theme
is, 'And a little child shall lead them,' and every one
that I've heard mention her story has that same
theme. And. too. I'm afraid I prolonged the death
scene too far," she added.
"Well, I think Miss Wells ought to know that
we have a lot of things to do just before Christmas.
I wish she would put off the stories. Papa remem-
bers ever so many things that happened to him long
ago at Christmas, and 1 certainly would take down
with pen and ink every word that fell from his lips
this Christmas. Oh. I'm so glad I'm going home!"
And up the line the freshman moved to see if she
had a letter from home.
Things ran on in this unsatisfactory way for
about a week. Xo one was found bold enough to
carry the request to Miss Wells, the English
teacher. She did hear, however, in some way, that
the girls wished more time on their assigned work,
and she kindly agreed to let them hand in their
Christmas stories after the holidays.
But alas for those who put off for tomorrow
what should be done today !
( >n the morning before the girls were to go home
the president remained after prayers to speak to the
girls. There was no use to ask for attention — every-
one was on the alert, for the president's talk was
certain to be something about going home ; and
going home meant getting that Christmas story
without much thinking.
"Young ladies," the voice began, "there are rive
of your number in the infirmary sick with mumps.
And while I regret very much to tell you what this
necessitates, yet I believe you will recognize the
wisdom of the decision. We have decided to give
only two days Christmas, and there will be posi-
tively no going home."
Immediately following this speech, the tearful
voices of three hundred girls moaned out :
"Oh, that Christmas story! Oh!"

To us a guide to rest,
But may they lead our friends
To thee, A. G. I. S.
To leave our school so dear.
Our friends and teachers too,
Fills every heart with grief
As now we sav adieu.
Although we say farewell,
We'll e'er be joined in thought
And one in purpose true
To live what thou hast taught.
